Description

VITICULTURE
For The Wolftrap Red 2019 blend, the producer opted for a higher percentage of Syrah. Most of the Syrah grapes are from the Swartland region, which has variety for its robust character with its elegant aromas of violets and ripe plums.
WINEMAKING
The wine has accentuated the spicy, peppery profile yet retaining the juicy, fruity character which is a hallmark of Wolftrap Red. Mourvèdre from the Swartland again lent a touch of austerity, a red fruit character and smoky body with the dash of Viognier contributing perfume and vibrancy. This classic, rustic Rhône style blend again over-delivers at its attractive price point.
OAK TREATMENT
Yes.
TASTING NOTE
Ripe plums, red currants, violets, Italian herbs and exotic spice dominate the nose. The perfume of the nose follows through with a certain smokiness and flavours of darker berries, liquorice, cardamom, star anise and cinnamon. The wine is fresh, plummy and vibrant with hints of fennel seed, orange peel, cloves and black pepper lingering on a juicy finish.
FOOD MATCHING
Steak and grilled meats.
